金银满屋 Gold and Silver

The title is a somewhat misleading one, because this is yet another cooking post. I promise this will be the last cooking post I make before the Chinese New Year, because these are the last of the ingredients that I have in the fridge. After today it will be all eating out for dinner until I drive back home to KL next week.

Here’s the ingredients that I have left…

2 pieces of vermicelli (rice noodles), 3 bacon strips, 3 cloves of garlic, a handful of frozen mixed vege, and 1 egg

I suppose I don’t need to mention the prep steps, you can already deduce from the picture above. Okay, well, the vermicelli is soaked in cold water for 10 minutes to loosen them up a bit..

What I did with these guys?

  1. Heat some oil and saute garlic and bacon bits until fragrant in a pan.
  2. Add frozen vegetables into the pan and cook for 2 minutes.
  3. Add vermicelli into the pan and cook for 3 minutes.
  4. Season with soy sauce and pepper accordingly, stirring until the seasoning is well mixed with all the ingredients. Cook for 2 more minutes.
  5. Set the fried vermicelli aside in a plate. Using the same pan, add a bit of oil and crack an egg into the pan.
  6. Leave the egg on medium heat to cook until you get a proper sunny side up with runny yolk….. Not. I messed up, I did the cracking too high up from the pan, as a result the egg yolk broke upon contact with the pan. So I ended up with scrambled eggs instead.

Here’s the end result

Stir Fried Vermicelli (Rice Noodles) with Scrambled Eggs. I originally wanted to have a runny yolk, then break it and mix with the noodles to have noodles coated in egg yolk. White coated in yellow, or 金包银, silver coated in gold. But I guess my dish is still a mix of silver and gold as it is. So I shall give the last of my self-cooked dish an auspicious name, 金银满屋 Gold and Silver Filling The House.

I know 金银 is typically a name people reserve for egg fried rice. I don’t care, my vermicelli is as silver as rice, so it should be alright to share this auspicious name. Sue me if you disagree. 😉

  1. You are so creative in the kitchen! I bet your wife would be pleased someday.
    What is wrong with frozen stuff? They are just as good and fresh when you know the tricks of thawing like you have explained to the novice.

  2. Your noodles look colourful I must say…but I don’t understand Chinese, so I don’t know what those auspicious names mean! 😀

    Those frozen carrots, corn and peas…I really dislike them. I hate it when they use that for fried rice and would specifically ask them to replace it with long beans. If the hawker don’t have long beans, then I won’t be ordering their fried rice.

    • What’s wrong with those frozen vege? I thought they are alright. Easy for lazy people, no need to cut and chop and wash so much.. 😀

  3. Aisey! Such a auspiscious name 金银满屋 Gold and Silver for your fried mee hoon. lol!

    Perhaps I should bookmark this page as my 2016 CNY day 1 breakfast eh!

  4. Aiya no need promise la, you post what, we read what lor.. All your post are interesting la, I like, except those football ones la, hehe.. Ooohhh your recipe similar with mine, I would have cooked the same way too if I have your ingredients.. Soy sauce and pepper also same, I always put in my fried rice, fried noodles too..

  5. That looks pretty good! Meehoon is after all made from rice, right? So it is not too far off to use the name which I don’t know how to read 😀 Don’t make promises about last cooking post lah because I like your cooking posts 🙂

    • That’s why meehon is called rice noodles hahaha! 😀

      I said last cooking post before CNY lah, not last cooking post forever lah 😀 😀

  6. That looks very pretty! I don’t buy those frozen vegetables anymore – the peas! No matter how long I cook them, they will still be as hard as stones. They say we do not get the good brands one, all around here the same. No Watties or whatever brand. 🙁

    • Maybe you need to soak those peas in the water for a bit, let some moisture get back into the peas. I used to get Watties stones too when I try to cook them straight from defrost.

  7. I support you using 金银 as an auspicious name for your dish as I prefer vermicelli over rice and scrambled eggs over sunny side up. I will eat this dish anytime. So delicious! May 金银 fill your whole house and car!

  8. Very auspiscious name for this dish. Just in time for Chinese New Year. Vermicelli is rice, a form of it. If I’m making this dish, I’d substitute the bacon for luncheon meat. Yes, luncheon meat is so bad but so tasty… 😀

    • Yeah I love luncheon meat too, but I have to buy a can of it, which means I can never finish them or I end up in the hospital immediately. So bacon strips it is for me.. 😀
